Professional Development

More and more individuals have been taking note of the benefits of meditation, which include lower stress levels, improved cognitive functioning, strengthened immune functioning and improved sleep. With the lure of constant stimulation —the pervasive demand of pings, rings and updates – attention span, productivity and personal interactions are compromised. Mindfulness can turn these 21st century challenges into opportunities for personal and professional growth because of its ability to train attention and develop the capacity for self-regulation.

In our Mindful@Work professional development program,we are laser-focused on social and emotional intelligence as a core ingredient to individual performance. Through hands-on activities and meaningful dialogue, we explore best practices that increase self-awareness,  improve the ability to focus, enhance communication and manage stress. Participants will develop an internal compass to enhance the quality of the lives they live both in and out of the workplace as well as discover strategies to lead others more effectively.

Our workshops and programs are customized to meet the needs of the organizations we serve and provide unmatched opportunities for individuals to learn, grow and transform in their workplace environment. Workshops are facilitated on-site as well as online – offering individuals to learn from the comforts of their own home.

Educators

Successful educators know they require more than subject matter expertise to manage the classroom environment. They need social intelligence and emotional balance to apply teaching strategies effectively. Our professional development workshops link teachers to best practices to nurture self-awareness, improve attention, build healthy communication skills, and personalize a repertoire of self-care practices to reduce reactivity, stress and burnout.

Corporate & Healthcare

Professionals often overlook the impact that mounting workloads, multiple demands, highly stressful environments, and constant connection to technology have on their ability to perform to their highest potential. Our training programs address the skills professionals need to improve attention, creativity and productivity in the workplace. Through team building activities and group dialogue, participants identify their strengths; create strategies where there are challenges; and build interpersonal skills to foster collaboration and teamwork.
